Nonviolent Protest and Resistance Privileged
RE: Nonviolent Protest and Resistance Privileged
(17th February 2017, 12:52)Mister Agenda Wrote: Black bloc seems to be the left anarchist expression of using violence to protest. Is it helping more than its hurting? It started in Germany as a reaction to a resurgence of Neo-Nazis, which is about as good as it gets as far as justifying the violence.

The downside:

- people whine about free speech while arguing for government forces to murder citizens by their ethnicity, religion or political affiliation

- journalists play both political sides by ignoring the abhorrent policies advocated by said Nazis to play up the liberal idea that there's no such thing as a bad idea

- mostly everyone forgets how Nazi Germany rose politically, which required useful idiots like the above to politically protect their right to advocate for getting rid of the Jewish traitors

The upside:

- possibly scare Nazis into silence


Yeah, I'm less convinced that the Black Bloc will win against disingenuous, self-serving ahistorical shitheadery put forth by the Left and the Right, which elevates Fascist or Totalitarian policies at the same level of discourse as Centrist policies.

I dispute that "all ideas are equal" notion through noting that some ideas are inherently harmful - the entire course of World War 2's crimes can be heaped upon coddling Nazism and pretending it had a valid voice in poltics.

Now we have a President who will literally lie about the weather of his own inauguration.

WTF world.
What is a drop of rain... compared to the storm?

What is a thought... compared to a mind?

They show up internationally. They're the equivalent of internet trolls and sometimes I'm not sure if they're not ruse to discredit honest and peaceful protestors. Their self proclaimed goal is anarchism. At the very least they're mindless idiots, since they don't really stand for anything. Truth to tell, I quite hate them, since they give protestors a bad name. They discredit protests and the issues being protested at the same time by burning cars or attacking cops.

Nazi government put forth propaganda that the jews were oppressing 'real' germans. What we really should be afraid of is the nazi tactic of  pretending to be the victim in order to gain societal favor to oppress lol...

And the argument isn't that all idea's are equal. It's that *everyone* should have the right to express *any* idea.

The only time violence ever should be used is to prevent even greater violence. And I'm talking qualitatively not quantitatively.
